Try your hand at these brain-busting trivia questions. Remember, please, that you may not google or use any reference sources for the first 24 hours of this thread.

-1. What are the seven numbers from 0 to 100 that look the same when written upside down?
-2. In the movie Little Shop of Horrors, the man-eating plant is a cross between butterwort and what other plant?
-3. In Egyptian mythology, what ancient god was originally god of the desert?
-4. What was the name of Merv Griffin's first TV show?
-5. In 1951, 200 people paid $3 a year for the privilege of having what kind of paper (plastic came later) in their wallet?
-6. Which gas is so light that it constantly escapes the earth's atmosphere and is replenished by the decay of radioactive elements?
-7. Originally dyed by producers to hide stains on its shell, what beige nuts are still artificially colored for tradition's sake?
-8. What medieval eyedrops were used to make a lady's eyes brighter, though they had the unfortunate side effect of possible blindness?
-9. Which hockey team won the Stanley Cup three times by 1940 but had to wait 54 years before they won it a fourth time?
-10. Of vermouth, cognac, and Grand Marnier, which spirit is not French in origin?
